Can You Exercise your Brain to Improve Memory?

June 21, 2018

We alerted you about claims that Prevagen can improve the function of your brain. There is no reliable evidence that proves it does.

Now we are going a step farther by suggesting that you should be skeptical of all claims that brain training can preserve or improve brain function.


For example the creators and marketers of the program Luminosity were fined 2 million dollars to settle charges made by the FDC that they deceived consumers with unsubstantiated claims. They advertised that their program would improve performance of everyday tasks and delay the onset of dementia.


There was no reliable clinical proof that these claims are true.


Remember even if the advertisements state the facts were proven by clinical studies, the studies may be flawed. It is always best to beware and to not jump on the band wagon.
